Course Description

After reading this article, the learner should be able to:
- explain that infants <9 months of age undergoing cardiac surgery using cardiopulmonary bypass have lower psychomotor developmental index (PDI) and mental developmental index (MDI) associated with longer support time (cardiopulmonary bypass, circulatory arrest, and regional perfusion).
- indicate that if one includes the analysis of postoperative events such as use of ECMO or prolonged length of stay, longer support time drops out as a significant predictor of lower MDI and PDI scores.
- recognize that over time, the MDI and PDI scores in these infants has been steadily improving.
